Manama in the country of Bahrain has a long history as an international trading hub and, as a result, the city enjoys a highly diverse selection of cuisine. If you have a Bahrain visa and plan on visiting this beautiful city on your next trip to the Middle East, be sure to take some time to visit these wonderful restaurants.
If you’re a fan of seafood, then Zoe is a must visit restaurant. This restaurant and lounge has an extensive, Mediterranean-themed menu featuring everything from beautiful cuts of Moroccan salmon to delicious, creamy clam chowder. Even if you’re not looking for a full meal, Zoe is a great place to stop by and enjoy an appetizer or a few drinks as the house DJ plays relaxing music for you and your traveling companions to enjoy. The restaurant also features multiple levels in addition to a rooftop lounge with a stunning view of the city. Zoe is open for lunch from noon to three and then switches to dinner, reopening at seven and serving until midnight. The restaurant is a little bit on the spendier side of Bahrain tourism but certainly is not the most expensive restaurant you can find in the city.
Bushido Restaurant is a great example of the amazing diversity you will experience with your Bahrain visa. A moat surrounds and Samurai statues guard this Asian themed restaurant, and plush furnishings and warm colors cover the interior. Like Zoe, Bushido Restaurant is a full sensory experience, and a DJ is on hand to entertain you and your friends. Bushido also features many different areas for you to enjoy some sushi or other types of Asian cuisine, from the dark and intimate dining room to the beautifully authentic teppanyaki room. Bushido Restaurant opens at noon and closes at 2 am daily. Just be warned – the food and the cocktails will set you back a bit, but the experience is worth it.
This laidback dining room serves up some of the best European cuisines you’ll find among Bahrain tourism locations. Masso emphasizes shared plates alongside more traditional entrees, and on the menu you’ll find favorites such as Rib-eye steaks, pumpkin ravioli, and wonderful seafood offerings that change as the season pass. Masso is open from noon to three for lunch, seven to two for dinner, and you will probably want to make a reservation if you want to be sure to find a table.
